Disclaimer: Granted, I do write about American "SNUS" and "snus" from time to time, but the focus of my blog/website is introducing people to REAL Swedish Snus. When it comes to snus, REAL Snus comes from Sweden. There's a difference, and the difference is big. Please read this article to learn the difference for yourself. It's the reason, in American "snus" articles, I put "snus" in quotation marks, because they call it "snus", but it's not REAL snus.
Though I’m not a fan of American “SNUS”, I have reviewed all of the flavors of Camel “SNUS” - Frost (Regular Size), Frost (Large Size), Mellow, Robust, Winterchill and Mint.
REAL Swedish Snus and American knock-off "SNUS" (Skoal, Camel, Marlboro), I've done comparison articles of Marlboro vs Camel "SNUS", I've reviewed Camel Mellow, Camel Robust and Winterchill, the second round reincarnation of Camel Robust and Winterchill, and another article about just why I'm so hard on American "SNUS". So granted, I do prefer and write about Swedish Snus, but I do write, periodically, about the American knock-off products. Mainly to help educate people on the difference between American and Swedish Snus, and to try and help convert people to a better product. Read the article linked above about the difference between American "SNUS"/"snus" and Swedish Snus if you're curious.
SnusCENTRAL recently wrote about Camel Frost Large and I commented, "Objectively, a small pile of shit and a bigger pile of shit is still just that - shit. Make it bigger, make it smaller, I honestly could care less, until an American company can make a snus that isn't "SNUS" and is on par with the quality I can expect from a Swedish Snus, they can get lost. Just my two cents." So the snus is bigger, is it better? Well, yes and no.
The original Camel "SNUS" incarnations were VERY dry, like somebody unrolled a cigarette and put it in a portion. This picture is from the last round of Camel "SNUS" I reviewed in 2009. Since then, the product quality has actually improved. And by product quality, I mean simply the presentation of the actual tobacco inside the portion.
